    Okay, so instead of a pack looking to beat the crap out of LSU fans after the game, there was a pack looking to beat the crap out of anybody after the game. Are you sure that's going to make people feel safer?

    Oh, yes! Gotta beware of those roving packs of hillbillies! Wrong Turn was a documentary after all!

    Geesh.

    Yes, WVU students have developed a culture of drunkenness, a reputation they feel they have to live up to. That doesn't mean that every incident has to be exaggerated to the point that it's looked at as typical. Chuck Landon at the Herald Dispatch has an well-documented extreme bias against WVU, and he and his paper aren't exactly neutral sources.

    In this case the main victim's wife, who was herself a victim, says this has been misreported. What more do you want?

    No surprise that Chuck Landon was involved in the "reporting" on this. I think WVU must have stolen his girlfriend and then run over his dog.
    This also fits with the notion that LSU fans probably weren't driving legally and didn't have license plates on their car....

    I have a different criteria I guess. I judge by the behavior of fans I interact with at sportsbars and violence that happens on and around campus after a big game
    So you judge a schools fan base by the ones who are liquored up, and you have a problem with someone else's criteria?

    Where do you find fans that aren't liquored up? Seems to me that's a possibility no matter where you go.

    The "Worst Fans in College Sports" is whoever just won the conference/national/league championship/title or whoever just beat your favorite team. If they have done it fairly regularly over some time period, they are particularly heinous.

    Somehow, Cub fans supercede both rules.

    OK, I get your line of thinking. So are you saying we can't compare BYU with Ohio State because one set of fans drink heavily and one doesn't?

    My point was how do you judge an OSU fanbase if you say we shouldn't include the ones who are liquored up?

    I don't agree with that. Some fans burn up the town like Vancouver, CA did and some don't
